General Description of the project

Rekite is a small 5 people craft enterprise that was born from the idea of a sea and kitesurfing lover. On the verge of discarding his sail, he thought of giving it a second life by making unique products like bags, backpacks, jackets and wallets. Rekite takes used or broken sails of kitesurfs from people that can donate them and create those objects, the result is avoiding pollution as those sails would end up in landfills.


The goal is environmental as reusing the sails Rethink can create products making an economical income and reducing world pollution.
